Mori Ex Cacao

skullchoc.jpgThe most tempting thing to grace my screen this morning is the D.L. & Co's Mori Ex Cacao Skulls... Particularly this black Curious Chili "An eccentric blend of chilies and spices immersed in smooth chocolate ganache, generating a warmth that rises to an almost deadly heat, before leaving you spent, yet craving more." Take a look at the other two skulls as well as the gift box trio below! In Bitter White Brandied Cherry and Scorched Caramel, how can you resist?

Reconstruccioniepce

brokenup.jpgRodrigo Bruna just sent in some images from Reconstruccioniepce which is showing at the Museo Nacional de Bellas Artes Curated by Angélica Peréz Germain - October 5 – December 3, 2007. If he sounds familiar, you are probably remembering our previous coverage of his incredible Toast "painting". Believe it or not, this too is made from toast! Here is his description of the piece:

"The first photography of a landscape was taken by Niepcé in 1826. The particularity and beauty of this image triggered my attention to work with it. In the middle of 2006 I initiated my research and creation project titled Reconstruccioniepce. Through spatial and objetual projects I developed a reflection of this image and the fragility of the reconstruction processes. The material chosen for these works was bread, and the action was toasting. It is not longer the sun which fixes the images, but the vehement fire that fixes the vestiges of a landscape on white slices of bread. This statement defines my system of work and the material and technical displacement I made of the photographic process. Reconstruccioniepce V arises from the destruction realized of a previous version of this work at the Museo de Artes Visuales of Santiago.

The remains of bread that were left from this action are selected and organized in a ornamental border that crosses two walls of the room, proposing a new version of this enigmatic landscape."

TasteSpotting Roundup

TasteSpotting #4345TasteSpotting #4343TasteSpotting #4348TasteSpotting #4361TasteSpotting #4353TasteSpotting #4340TasteSpotting #4333TasteSpotting #4318TasteSpotting #4298TasteSpotting #4288Click the images to see more!. Mmmmmm. Cinnamon Rolls. Ok this weeks roundup ~ i wanted to give you guys a little insight on how hard editing submissions can sometimes become. When i started TasteSpotting, the vision was to create a gorgeously drool worthy space filled with delectable delights... and we were excited to have ANY submissions at all. But as with all things, evolution is inevitable... and scaling, necessary. So as the visual/designy side of the site (and yes, we all know i'm quite the newbie when it comes to food)... trends have become even more apparent on TasteSpotting than any of the others lately, and it's put editing in a hard place. For example... this week, EVERYONE seems to be cooking delicious cinnamon rolls! 5 of the posts are up there, and even more were in submissions that didn't make it up... this is where it is no longer a problem about whether the image and post are things we love, but whether it is interesting and stand out enough as a Cinnamon Roll post. Because as you can imagine, a front page of 30 cinnamon roll pictures isn't exactly what people come to TasteSpotting to see. Other trends? Last week mooncakes were showing up in full force. Then there was the heirloom tomato trend before that. Pomegranates have been popular lately too. Basically when a trend organically appears, we try not to let it take over the site TOO much, and the standards tend to raise on that theme. Anyhow, i just wanted to let you all know, and see whether people had any ideas or opinions on how we should handle this. Our goal is to showcase some of the most beautiful and interesting selections of links daily to whet your palate... how do we handle the possibility of having TOO MANY posts a day? Is there such a thing?

Sauces n Love

saucesnlove.jpgSauces 'n Love ~ my recent packaging discovery at the market... although not the ONLY reason i purchase something, its definitely big on my first impressions, so i grabbed this Sauces 'n Love Tuscan Vodka Scarpetta, and was pleased to see that they come in these nice Re-usable screw cap plastic containers that are microwave, freezer, and diswasher safe! Also nice clean typography on the label ~ and its "Healthy 'n Love - Gluten Free. Vegetarian. No Sugar. No Preservatives. Low count on Carbs, fat, and choesterol." And the best part ~ this sauce was incredible. So fresh and delicious. Mmmmm... Close up images of the labels and container below!

Looking at my picks after the fact, looks like chocolate was looking particularly enticing... also the way that nutmeg looks like a brain is a bit of a trip. And can you believe that bottom row, second from the left is Brownie Tiramisu? Or Tiramisu Brownie? Either way, interesting idea.

The Fine Cheese Co Crackers

crackersmain.jpg
I can admit it - as much as i love fine cheeses and crackers, packaging still sways my purchasing... luckily this time it paid off. Came across these Fine Cheese Company Crackers at Faletti's which are imported from Bath, and the boxes have gorgeous imagery and typography. Above are the Sea Salt and Olive Oil (absolutely delicious to munch on plain even) and the Rosemary Crackers. Below i also have pictures of the natural and charcoal crackers with simpler illustration and typography on the box that is worth taking a look at. I also found the Charcoal Crackers visually interesting, being black they look really nice in contrast with white cheeses.

6 Travel Chopsticks

chopstickmain.jpg
Ok, on odd fixations for the night, i remembered an old OLD post on travel chopsticks (dan actually even bought them)... and they were silly and complex? As shade elaine and i wonder... they aren't really that much lighter, or take up that much less space... why do you need them? where are you bringing them? Well... i googled travel chopsticks and we were the first hit... so i browsed more, and apparently the travel chopstick options have come a long way! So below are 6 awesome options i've found to meet your travel chopstick needs. Trust me, they are quite impressive design objects... esp for such a simple instrument.

Best Food Blogs

Our little TasteSpotting is growing up fast! Freshly submitted to TasteSpotting: the Debonair Magazine Food Blog Awards. And we're totally blushing over here. Honored to be given "Best Food Blog Directory", which i guess in some regard we can be considered a blog... and a directory... although personally i never really thought of us as either, but more of something that had a few characteristics of each. Anyhow, i digress. We're listed with some of our favorites - a few being: Chez Pim, Nordjus, Chocolate & Zucchini, Midtown Lunch, 101 Cookbooks, Eater, and more!

Freebase Pancakes

freebasepc.jpg
Every now and then, a series of images comes along and just blows your mind. I couldn't stop laughing, and then just kind of staring amazement at the micro scale "cooking" going on here ~ my friend is calling them Freebase Pancakes. How one even comes up with a concept such as this amazes me. See full set of imagery below. via Random Stuff

Chipotle Menu Art

chipotlemenu.jpg
Ahhhh Chipotle, how we love thee. Yes, we have a bit of a Chipotle addiction going over at NOTCOT... we jest that there is crack in the rice (don't worry, to the best of our knowledge there isn't, just some sugar and cilantro) because since the college days in SD we keep coming back for more... even if it is efficiently run by the mcdonalds folks... Not to mention they have just great graphic design, and playful marketing.

So, you'll understand that i couldn't resist when i saw Andrew Wilson's Chipotle Menu Art gallery, and had to share it. Found this at Evasee, which calls the works "innocently nasty".
